One common question we encounter is how to address a yeast infection occurring under the breast. It’s essential to first ascertain whether it’s truly a yeast infection. Sometimes, a visual inspection might be enough, but in certain cases, a swab test may be necessary.
Regions such as skin folds, under the breast, between the buttocks, or around the thigh area are optimal environments for Candida growth. These areas often provide the moisture, darkness, and warmth that Candida thrives in. A common solution for reducing moisture and friction in the breast area is the use of supportive garments. It’s essential to pay regular attention to these zones to keep them clean and dry.
Addressing this condition requires a two-fold approach: local treatment and systemic intervention. Locally, the area can be treated with natural products like calendula cream or tea tree oil. It’s beneficial to shower twice daily, ensuring the area is dry post-shower. A natural powder can also help keep moisture at bay. Instead of fungal creams, we recommend creams with tea tree oil, readily available at health stores.
On a systemic level, factors like weight loss can be beneficial. Shedding excess weight can strengthen the immune system, improve digestive function, and overall reduce the body’s susceptibility to Candida.
